It is interesting to note that in response to news that Roy Ngerng, Han Hui Hui and four other protestors would be charged in court for the role in the 27 September 2014 Hong Lim Park heckling incident, Leong Sze Hian immediately posted an appeal on his Facebook page asking for people to come forward to stand bail and pay the expected $6,000 fine and legal fees.
It is a well-known fact that Leong Sze Hian has been mentoring Roy Ngerng and Han Hui Hui on how to use civil disobedience to force the Government to review the CPF system and the much debated minimum sum requirement.
As an observer, Leong Sze Hian’s Facebook post raises many questions. Firstly, where was Leong Sze Hian during the protest gone wrong? Did he instigate Roy Ngerng and Han Hui Hui to do his bidding and then take the cowardly act of standing aside to watch what happens? Rumours have it that Leong Sze Hian told Roy and Hui Hui that he needed to be “innocent” so that he can act on their behalf if they were arrested.
The second question is why is there a need to appeal for six people to stand bail? Can’t Sze Hian himself stand bail for Roy or Hui Hui? Or is Leong afraid that his puppets will not show-up in court and he will then be liable for Roy and Hui Hui’s actions. Once again, rumours have it that Leong Sze Hian is unwilling to put himself in this potentially difficult position.
The third question is why is there a need to appeal FOR MONEY to pay the expected legal fees and fine? Didn’t Roy Ngerng claim to have raised over $110,000 for his legal defence fund? As such, isn’t there a huge surplus which will enable Roy to pay the small $6,000 fine plus legal fees? Or, could it be that Roy’s claim of massive public support is a scam? Surprising, many donors have been calling for Roy to be transparent with how he has used the FUNDS, but he has remained silent on the matter. Isn’t Roy guilty of the same thing he is accusing the Government of?
It is this observer’s view that Roy Ngerng and Han Hui Hui are mere puppets in enabling Leong Sze Hian’s to achieve his personal agenda. Hopefully, Leong Sze Hian’s actions when the chips are down will open Roy’s and Hui Hui’s eyes to the fact that they are being used.
